Earlier today I had the opportunity to visit with some of the team members at the fast-growing Atlanta startup Cloud Sherpas (Google Apps consultants). Cloud Sherpas did a custom build-out that took two months over at Piedmont Center in Buckhead. Here are some details of their new space:
- Orange paint throughout to emphasize their corporate branding
- Conference rooms named after famous mountains (playing off the “sherpa” part of their name)
- Concrete floors and exposed duct-work in the reception area to create a loft feel even though they are on the seventh floor of a mid-rise
- Huge breakroom with two full-size refrigerators, giant LCD TV, several sofas, and large whiteboards on the wall
- Great work areas with numerous workstations using half-height dividers to give some privacy while being primarily open
- And, most importantly, genuinely happy people walking the halls
The new Cloud Sherpas office is great and really sets the tone for a cool technology startup office.
